What Are You Searching For?

Seek the Lord while he may be found;     call on him while he is near.  Isaiah 55:6 NIV But may all who seek you     rejoice and be glad in you; may those who long for your saving help always say,     “The Lord is great!”  Psalms 40:16 NIV Glory in his holy name;     let the hearts of those who seek the Lord rejoice.  Look to the Lord and hisContinue reading “What Are You Searching For?”

Time…

Timing is everything. Or, at the very least it is mighty important. Time is quoted in the Bible hundreds of times. The NIV cites “time” eight hundred and eighty-eight times! I have a strange relationship with time. There have been times in my life I was quite short on time. As a result, I don’tContinue reading “Time…”

Happy Mother’s Day!

“Her children rise up and call her blessed” Celebrate your mother, grandmothers, aunts, cousins, godmothers, teachers, community leaders and all the women who have positively affected your life. If possible, give them flowers while they can smell them and kind words while they can hear them. Here are ten lessons I learned from my mom… KeepContinue reading “Happy Mother’s Day!”

Dark Places…

Easter weekend found me giving more than a bit of thought to “Silent Saturday.” Other than egg hunts as a kid, little attention was given to the Saturday before Easter. Yet, these many years later, I suspect there are more “Silent Saturdays” in our lives than repentant Fridays or Sunday resurrections. Perhaps, when things lookContinue reading “Dark Places…”

Gethsemane…

Then Jesus went with his disciples to a place called Gethsemane, and he said to them, “Sit here while I go over there and pray.” He took Peter and the two sons of Zebedee along with him, and he began to be sorrowful and troubled. Then he said to them, “My soul is overwhelmed with sorrow to the point of death.Continue reading “Gethsemane…”

Spring Forward!

“Brethren, I do not count myself to have apprehended; but one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind and reaching forward to those things which are ahead,” Philippians 3:13 NKJV Some things are intended to move with us. Memories. Love. Lessons learned. Others are meant to be forgotten and buried such as regret,Continue reading “Spring Forward!”

Still Searching for a Real Love, Baby?

As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you; abide in My love. If you keep My commandments, you will abide in My love, just as I have kept My Father’s commandments and abide in His love. “These things I have spoken to you, that My joy may remain in you, and that your joy mayContinue reading “Still Searching for a Real Love, Baby?”

Sow Good Seed…We Are What We Speak!

We reap what we sow. This principle is demonstrated many times throughout the Bible. Yet, one of the simplest ways for us to sow good seed for our lives is something many of us struggle with. With the tongue we praise our Lord and Father, and with it we curse human beings, who have beenContinue reading “Sow Good Seed…We Are What We Speak!”

Let It Go!

With the year’s end looming, many of us are reflecting on the pains and gains of 2017. Or, we are thinking ahead to what the New Year may bring. Last year was a rollercoaster of extreme highs and lows for me, and most of it is still a blur. I sit here typing at theContinue reading “Let It Go!”

The Holly…

As a kid, one of my favorite Christmas carols was The Holly and the Ivy. I’m sure I had no idea how both related to Christmas back then. When I finally recognized and understood the words I was curious why this carol called the holly and the ivy. There is very little mention of theContinue reading “The Holly…”
